Kansas troubles

I have been working on some foundation piecing - which is a method I have not used before, but I thought I would try it for fun.
Now I am not entirely sure I am sold on this method as it is a fairly slow process, but so far the results are fairly accurate even for a beginner foundation piecer.  It is definitely slower for me than regular piecing, but more accurate.  I think as I get faster as I progress I may think better of it.
I had prepared this for last weeks quilt group meeting at Langham, for something to work on, however I did not really get much sewing done, as I chatted to the other ladies about quilts and showed some ladies who had requested to see the accuquilt GO cutting machine.
Tina and Freda had a quilt that I had recently quilted for them for show and tell, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that my name had been credited for the quilting on the label.  This is the first time I have seen this on someone elses quilts, and it was a pleasure to see.  "Longarm quilted by Janette Chilver Colchester"  thank you Tina !!!
Tina also gave me lots of tips and tricks about foundation piecing, which I have been putting into practice!   I am getting a little faster with the method, and I think if I get some thinner paper it would go even better.  These are my blocks so far .......
It is a more traditional block and more traditional fabrics than I have used of late, but I love to make many different types of quilt - I am already jumping ahead to the quilting stage in my mind - although that will be a long time off in the future !!!
